Advance decline ratio is used in fundamental as well as technical research as a market breadth indicator.
A good ratio indicates positive market sentiments for the entire sector (constituting index) and thus we can invest in the sector speculating a good growth further as well. Once the sector selected we can choose the stock on the basis of the previous advances of the indices.
It is regarded as a good technical indicator to track the market sentiments. The frequency to measure the ratio may vary from few minutes, days, weekly or longer then it.
